Question about Microsoft Windows 98 for PC
The reason of of start in safe mode is to give you the opportunity to fix something wrong in your system.
Posible causes :
- You are not shuting the system down Properly.
If you have a power supply that needs to be turned off manually make sure you turn it off only when the system tells you it is save to do it.( after clicking in shutdown in start menu).
- There are incompatibilities in your system.
Make sure all the devices are properly installed ( hardware and software) and and there is no conflict between them.( you can read about this in windows help( look in start menu or in the toolbar of any window for the button HELP).
Some times it is a simple driver you need to install or reinstall.
- A system file is corrupted ( most the time you will have to reinstall Windows) if that is the case, there are other ways to fix it but are a little more complex.
- Problems in the Registry( only people familliar with that can fix it) or can be solved by reinstalling Windows.
-Make sure the CMOS is saving your Config in the setup.
may be the battery needs to be replaced( you will have to configure Setup again after replacing it.
In any case i advice you to get help from somebody familiar with PCs, before you try anything that can result in damage for your PC.
If you want to do it yourself, get some tutorials about PCs.
Hope this help.
